Sunset gives you the best of the best classic overdrive circuits, custom voiced for instantly gratifying control over a huge range of sought-after tones.

Two pedals at once.
Sunset is really two customizable overdrive pedals, independently selectable and flexibly routable, designed and voiced for complementary tones when stacked. Six distinct circuits each feel and react differently in your hands, two at once, all in one convenient package. Push your amp any way you want, from transparent "more amp" to heavy saturated fuzz, and all the best places in between.

Holy Grail tone, minus the quest.
Each side of Sunset is designed with just one tone knob, so you can quickly dial in the sound you want. The knob ranges for each circuit type are custom calibrated to provide maximal usable control. With the stacking options, each combination interacts optimally and sounds great, so a huge range of classic overdrive tones are instantly achievable.

Six classic circuits.
Sunset utilizes an all-analog JFET gain stage coupled with custom-voiced, precision-crafted DSP algorithms to capture the nuances and character of each circuit type.

Optimized Stacking.
Sunset allows you to use any of its six overdrive circuits on their own, or route the Channel A drive circuit through Channel B, or Channel B through Channel A, or use two circuits in parallel. Routing options have been chosen deliberately to present the best-sounding combinations of drive circuits. Sunset eliminates the guesswork.

Digital or analog? Sunset gives you both.
Sunset's input features an ultra low noise, discrete, class-A JFET circuit providing up to 20dB of pure analog gain. With a hybrid approach you get the best of both analog and digital worlds: The JFET stage provides exceptional touch sensitivity and dynamic interaction with your guitar, while the incredibly powerful SHARC DSP facilitates the great level of detailed complexity and responsiveness you'll want to hear.

FEATURES:

    • Favourites - save and recall your favourite settings. Just connect an optional MiniSwitch or other external latching footswitch with a TRS cable to store and recall your Favourite setting.

    • Config switch gives you powerful control over signal flow when you stack two drive circuits.

    • Three-position Bright switch is custom voiced to perfectly tailor the highest frequencies of your output signal.

    • Morphing expression control - Connect an expression pedal, and enjoy a whole new level of instantaneous, continuous control. Set as many knobs as you like for the heel position and toe position of your expression pedal, and all settings will simultaneously morph throughout the full range of the expression pedal

    • Variable-threshold noise reduction feature tamea hum, buzz, and system noise when you're not playing.

  • Volume control - The Expression pedal jack can be set up in Volume Mode, which provides a logarithmic taper for smooth volume control, even when Sunset is in bypass mode. If you have an expression pedal, this provides an excellent alternative to a standalone Volume pedal.
